Ma./Mo. 6 Feb. 2012, Calafou Benefit, Volkseten Vegazulu, 19:00
Calafou started in October 2010 as an autonomous project spawned from the Cooperativa Integral Catalana [https://cooperativa.ecoxarxes.cat/]. We moved in about june, and we are fixing the space to create a ‘Postcapitalist industrial ecovillage’ where to produce grassroots technology for the transition.We are an eclectic group of scientifically oriented ecologists specialised in other stuff (software developers, researchers, sociologists, teachers, video artists) that want to prepare tools for the transition, trying, stablishing and spreading best practices regarding sustainability, housing, work.
We believe technology is not neutral and we need to commit to change the way we live to be more coherent with our values and prepare for a new society, more resilient and balanced with the resources of our planet.
The aim of the space is to become a resource center for the different initiatives taking place in the zone. It’s location, 10 min. walk from a train station that takes you to Barcelona in a bit more than one hour, makes it easy to visit and not so isolated.
